Interviewing Tips

From “Your ABA ” here’s a column on interviewing tips. Here’s the tip that I think most useful to law students, because, in my experience, they contradict it a lot.

Be careful not to frame comments in a way that is all about what you will gain from the position and not enough about what you will give to the employer.

For example, Price said, avoid statements such as "I am looking for a place that will give me training and support," and instead say, "I want to contribute to a team that thinks creatively to solve a client's problem."
